Geforce 8600 gt won't downclock on idle HELP!

hi i have this geforce installed in my rig and:

- the fan is seated correctly and working
- enough ventilation through the case 2 fans with ambient @ 28C
- tried reinstalling windows and nvidia drivers (windows xp)
- no games running in background (even newly installed windows the card is still at full load)

clock speed and memory speed is running at full load that's why my temp is reaching58C-62C
it doesnt downclock it's self even its idled in desktop
and also the voltage is 1.380, i think its high because its also on full load

my clock speed is constant @ 540mhz .while memory is constant also @ 400mhz both are same in idle and full load.

please help me fix this
